Star Wars: TOR early access begins Dec 13
What’s better than access to an MMO? Early Access, that’s what. And thanks to a recent post on the official website for Star Wars: TOR, Bioware have let players know that early access to the game will begin starting December 13th.
Direct from the Star Wars: TOR Official Website:
Early Game Access* for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is only a few days away! Starting December 13, 2011, The Old Republic will begin emailing invitations to start your Early Game Access. Invitations will be sent throughout the Early Game Access period offering rolling access to the game in the order in which you redeemed your Pre-Order Code, so be sure to check your email inbox!
To ensure that players can get into the game as quickly as possible when their Early Game Access begins, we are now allowing everyone who has redeemed a Pre-Order Code at our Code Redemption Center to pre-load the game to their computer.
In order to download the game client before Early Game Access begins, you need have already logged into your account and redeemed your Pre-Order Code. Once you have done this, you can download the game client by clicking on “My Account” in the upper-right of the window and then click “Pre-Order.” On your Pre-Order page, click the large button that says “Download Game Client” to begin download of the game!
Good news for all gamers in countries that have access to the game! Not so great news for us Aussies, who are still in limbo when it comes to knowing whether we’ll even get to play the MMO. Most Aussies are likely thinking of importing, but it would still be nice to know exactly what’s going on. Here’s hoping we get some concrete details soon. For everyone else – look for your early access emails, and if you’re one of the lucky ones who receives an invitation, let us know your thoughts on the game in the comments below.
